ExtremeTech loves it too: "The board was utterly stable with the "optimized defaults" loaded up, and the board held its own in our benchmarks.

"With its enormous gaggle of features, the P4 Titan GA-81RXP is a phenomenal motherboard for its price and a startling (but welcome) departure from Gigabyte".
